A cold start

My Swedish Hagen Wagon thermometer read minus 12 degrees Fahrenheit ( -24 Celsius) when I pulled up to my HFN office on Friday morning!

  1. That's a nice was to visualize that murderous temperature. And how warm was it inside the car?
    Does your Hagen Wagon have those fancy heated seats?

  4. We have a more normal Roskilde-winter now. May be The Northatlantic Oscillation has changed back again - leaving us with a so called green winter.
    ...the new Hagen Wagon is made to start in all temperatures, I guess.

    If you take away the negative sign, 24 Celsius is the temperature at night in Singapore!

  17. It might have been cold, but Garrison Keillor assures me that you Minnesotans are hardy stock.

    Re The Hartford, I put two photos on my blog last July, within the first two weeks after I started up. I have looked at it several times since, but didn't see something I wanted to shoot. I should try again, maybe in the spring when the landscaping is emerging. Here is a link: http://hartforddailyphoto.blogspot.com/2010/07/hartford.html

  20. We complain here of temperatures down to 0 centigrade, 32 F. Saw some people in T shirts today. Scandinavian tourists enjoying the 'warm' weather, maybe.
